     Ral.. Summer'57         


    After South Gate High I went to compton Jr collage then into the Army and a tour of duty to Korea for 13 months... After the service, I worked for my father in the car business for a few years and in 1967 I went to work for Simpson Buick in Downey and was there for 11 years... During that time I married Sue Furman class of 59.... We have twin daughters 37 years old and two grand children...

In 1978 I went to S&J Chevrolet and we opened the Cerritos Auto Mall... I co-managed that store for 23 years until I retired... During that time I was divorced and took up flying and owned a plane for 10 years... a wonderful experience...I did a lot of traveling during that time in the plane  and by trips provided by General Motors....

When I retired in 2001 I sold the plane and replaced it with a Corvette... I enjoy traveling although I did not get to do any this past year... I also enjoy wood working.. I do a lot of wood turning and make items of exotic woods... I am unmarried and still live in Downey, California
